California Water Resources Control Green-Lights Recycled Water as Drinking Water
A report released December 29 by the StateWater Resources Control Board concludes that it is feasible to develop and adopt regulations for using recycled water as drinking water, provided that certain research and key knowledge gaps are addressed. Direct potable reuse (DPR) is the addition of recycled water directly into a drinking water system or into a raw water supply immediately upstream of a drinking water treatment plant. No other state has yet developed regulations specifically for direct potable reuse. Se...
Identifying Water Contaminants to Protect the Public and Workers in Puerto Rico

Forecasting Europe’s water quality from space
Drinking water accounts for about 18% of the total fresh water abstractions in the European Union (EU). Providing safe and reliable drinking water to over 508 million inhabitants, places the water sector at the centre of environmental, social and economic decision-making. Performance efficiency in water utilities has traditionally been associated with good water quality production and reliability, providing customers a continuous supply of safe and clear water. While our freshwater resources are already limited,...
